What Tongue Cancer Survivors said about their Chemotherapies.

Set for July 6 and July 21
Three Cisplatin chemo doses, Jan 4, Jan 26, Feb 16. Never got the Feb 16 dose as I was too sick from throwing up.
Do not know yet if I will have to go through Chemotherapy.
A 2 chemical soup every 3rd Monday and then a 24/5 fanny pack pump the same week as above. I have 1 week on and 2 weeks off treatment
I started the chemo the frist week in July 2010. I had a reaction to the first chemo which was Carboplatin and taxol so they changed it to Cisplatin and taxotere. They loaded me up on steroids and during the next treatment i had yet another reaction this one only worse than the first. So as a last ditch effort they changed again to cetuximab and honestly i cant remember what the second one they gave me with this was. I was ok with this drug but the side effects were aweful! I broke out all over my face with horrible acne and it made the radiation stronger which made the raidation burns worse.
Chemotherapy to be given concurrently, once a week. Began on 8/23/12.
second form of chemo 3 more weeks, no side effects
3 bags of cisplatin
For me Chemo was much easier than Radiation. Cisplatin and 5-FU 24/7 for which I was hospitalized. I refused my last chemo treatment because I was too sick, and honestly I thought it would take a lot more than chemo to save me from this beast called cancer. Yet I survived and have for the last 20 years.
No chemotherapy.
Only 5 of 6 Cisplain treatments given because of so much nausea. Hospitalized for nausea and given extra intravenous fluids bags 2-3 weeks separate days from the chemo infusions.
